SAS Secret Mission Description:

The Action Man SAS series was popular in the 1980s and made because of the SAS Iranian Embassy siege's success. It featured two half cylinders that fitted together and were secured by two yellow plastic hoops, in turn joined together by yellow string. Inside was an inflatable black dinghy (of the type similiar to that included in the Special Mission Pod and Sabotage sets*) and various SAS styled mission equipment, mostly borrowed from other sets.

Notes:

The Action Man SAS Pod is rarer than the common Special Mission. The stickers can become damaged. It was also available on equipment cards, as were the other accessories in this set. *Unlike the Sabotage set's dinghy, the Special Mission Pod dinghy seems to have been supplied without the paddle stowage loops, but it is not documented as such anywhere at present. Replacement stickers are available here
